DALLAS, Dec. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --
As a part of our Chip In For Charity initiative, Populus Financial Group launched a new line of charity products which included three additional debit card options for accountholders of the ACE Flare™ Account by MetaBank®. The new cards will have contactless capabilities as well as EMV chips that offer added security.
In 2017, Populus Financial Group launched their Pink ACE Flare™ Account by MetaBank® Visa® Debit Card and it has been one of the most popular choices because ACE consumers love giving to good causes.
As part of the campaign, each time a Pink ACE Flare™ Account by MetaBank® Visa Debit Card or Pink ACE Elite™ Visa Prepaid Debit Card is used, ACE and Netspend donate to NBCF. Since 2007, we have helped raise awareness and donated over $6 million to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
We are now expanding our support to Homes For Our Troops, Save the Children, and the Humane Society of the United States.
"We are excited to expand our charity debit card portfolio and to be able to give our customers options on charities they would like to support," said Eric Norrington, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs for Populus Financial Group. "By adding these charities, we are able to help children, veterans, and animals in the communities where we live and work."
These charities are a part of Populus's ACE Cash Express charitable-giving program, the ACE Community Fund, which has donated more than $14 million to organizations across the nation since its inception in 2004.
The ACE Flare™ Account is established by MetaBank®, National Association, Member FDIC. Netspend is a service provider to MetaBank, N.A. Certain products and services may be licensed under U.S. Patent Nos. 6,000,608 and 6,189,787.

About Homes For Our Troops
Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) is a publicly funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives. Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives. Since its inception in 2004, nearly 90 cents out of every dollar spent has gone directly to program services for Veterans. HFOT builds these homes where the Veteran chooses to live and continues its relationship with the Veterans after home delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives.
